CBS puts 'Wolf Lake,' 'Jericho' and 'Swingtown' online

As part of its Second Look feature, CBS is putting all of the episodes for "Jericho," "Swingtown" and "Wolf Lake" up on for the summer, allowing viewers to experience a trio of dramas they didn't necessarily flock to when they were actually airing.

Michael Rady Is First to Move to New Melrose Place

It's pilot casting, Six Degrees of Separation-style. Michael Rady, who, like Grant Show, starred on CBS' short-lived Swingtown, is the first actor to call The CW 's new Melrose Place home. (For those young whippersnappers who need me to "connect the dots," Show starred on the original Melrose.) Rady, says the Hollywood Reporter, will play Jonah, an aspiring filmmaker who puts food on his and his live-in fiancee's table by videotaping the weddings and bar mitzvahs of Los Angeles' rich and fabulous. THR likens Jonah to "Billy/the Andrew Shue role." In addition to Swingtown, Rady has also enjoyed roles on TV's Greek and in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. This all-but-greenlit-for-fall Melrose reboot is being penned by Smallville exec producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer. Inconvenient Truth Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim will direct. Source here

Swingtown Officially Canceled - Featured

This shouldn't come as a surprise, but until today, CBS had never officially put sexy summer series Swingtown to rest. Says CBS Entertaiment President Nina Tassler, "We're not going back to Swingtown...right now." She also mentioned that they were proud of the show and glad they took the risk to air it. I ended up watching Swingtown all at once courtesy of a Bravo marathon and it wasn't half bad. Sorry to see it won't be coming back ("right now" - thanks for the false hope, Nina). Source: TV Guide

Swingtown Creator's New Bisexual Drama

Thank you! Finally it's noted that perhaps Swingtown should be on Showtime instead of CBS - but hang on folks, this is just an inkling of an idea for this freshman summer drama. What is more than an inkling of a Showtime drama is an all new show from the creator of Swingtown: Bicoastal . Ha. Love it already. This cleverly named and properly cable-placed drama will feature "a man who lives with a wife and children in L.A. and falls in love with a man in New York." But what about Swingtown ? Does it have a chance at a second season? Maybe. CBS is still out on that verdict, but it sounds like there may be a little chance of Swingtown landing on Showtime as well.
